Impaler's Catacombs Location: How to Find It

Impaler's Catacombs can be found east of the Bridge of Sacrifice, almost directly north of Beside the Crater-Pocked Glade. You'll need to take an arching hill to lower ground in order to access its entrance.

Impaler's Catacombs: Walkthrough

Beware the sheer number of Imps you'll encounter in the Impaler's Catacombs, as they can become a real nuisance. Take the stairway down to the Site of Grace, and then around the inside of the catacombs, ensuring not to fall off the edge. There's a locked door, and you'll need to venture deeper into the catacombs in order to open it, so head left. There's a dead end at the far end of the corridor, although be sure to loot all the Grave Glovewort.

Come back to the main corridor and take the other pathway. There's a giant lift mechanism you can run upon for Grave Violet, but beware as when it rises to the ceiling, you'll take damage on all the spikes above. Instead trigger it, and then step off the lift. Wait for it to rise and drop down into the lower levels. Then follow this passageway, ensuring to loot Prattling Pate Please Help and more Grave Glovewort. Deal with any Zombies, ensuring to avoid them grabbing onto you, and climb the ladder at the end. Interact with the mechanism and then follow the pathway back to the unlocked door, although beware the Imp lurking around the corner as you go. Prepare to fight the Erdtree Burial Watchdog.
